Butterick 5917

I have seen two cute dresses made from this pattern. This one and this one.  I have made a few fitting adjustments to this pattern, making a FBA, FSA, raising the under arm by 3/8 inch and adjusting cap sleeve for this adjustment also.

I hope to cut out my fabric soon.  I believe this will be a fairly easy dress to sew.  It only calls for lining the bodice but I think I will make a full lining-bodice and skirt.  I think my fabric my need this and with a lining will hopefully keep wrinkles at bay.

I think after making this dress, I will begin to transition to items that will work their way into fall clothing.  I am so not ready for the fall.  July was the rainiest month this year and I feel like a missed a month of summer.

More information later.


  1. That dress is pretty and love the madras fabric Goodbye Valentino used.

  2. Seeing the dress made up by others helped in viewing it differently than on the pattern envelope. I think it has potential for a fall dress also.
